I remember growing up in Northern Michigan, where one would become literally face to face with Little Brown Bats at night. They travelled in huge numbers right past you as you walked down the street on this very populated, car less, little island called Mackinac. Rarely ever brushing you, you could feel the wind of them passing you. They were welcomed by me. I have fond memories of the Little Brown Bats!
